Sharing the Load

Posted on | August 16, 2010 | Comments Off

Dear Short Answers:
I dropped out of college 4 years ago after only one year so that I could get married. I desperately want my degree but my wife says that I need to stay home with her and the baby and that I can’t go to night school. She says I am selfish.  Should I just do it?

Dear College:
Going to school while holding down a job and participating in your family is tough duty. Your wife will need to share the burden — one way or the other.  Perhaps she can get a job and you can work less but share the childcare responsibilities. Try to help her to understand that a college degree will enhance your career opportunities and that will benefit her and your baby as well.
